Victorinox is known around the world for multifunction, thanks to its line of iconic Swiss Army knives that do every task a small piece of stainless steel could ever be expected to do. The Night Vision is a different type of Swiss Army multifunction: a watch with a useful secondary role.
The Night Vision watch has a series of integrated LED lights that enhance it as a timekeeper and add new functions. The most notable LED is the one that's built into the top of the case, transforming the watch into a flashlight by shining a beam forward. That light also has a strobe function, which can be used as an emergency distress signal. A blue LED inside the dial illuminates the time at night. All three of those lights are activated by pushing a button on the side.
The watch also has a red pilot light designed to let its owner locate it in the dark, and a low-battery warning light.
The Night Vision watch was originally launched in 2003 and redesigned for this year. It is available in several different styles, starting at US$595. The new watch looks a little more distinguished and cleaner than the older version.
